World Diabetes Day on November 14th raises awareness about diabetes and encourages advocacy and education about the disease. Its main theme for 2009 through 2013 has been education and prevention. The slogan for this year is “Diabetes: protect our future”.
In 2010, The Flag Shop New Brunswick made a flag for World Diabetes Day that is flown during the month of November in the communities of Dieppe, Moncton, and Riverview in New Brunswick. The 36″ x 72″ flag is printed on 200D nylon.
